Singapore: Strange Green Lights in the Sky

squareCircleZ and several other Singaporeans spot strange green lights over Singapore. squareCirclez writes “The light it was giving off was a neon-like light green, and the strangest thing was that no noise accompanied it.”

    i was walking back home, i saw this long green beam of light in the sky. i stared at it for a while. it was definately coming from above the clouds, since parts of the lights were missing due to the clouds below them… the light wud stay on for 10-15 sec and go off for a couple seconds and so on… then i saw this airplane moving past it, at a relatively low altitude… perhaps checking on what it was… u cud work out how big it was comparing it to the size of the airplane.. it was a pretty long beam… i went back in to tell my room mate to come out and have a look and it was gone… certainly gave me goosebumps…

    after further searching, i found out the light is actually a caused by a very strong laser used for a university project… so problem solved for me…

    I also see this green light in the air, but now I also think it may be from the same university project that Vancouver Boy is talking about..still very spooky..

    Hello…
    I am really freaking out here! Last night on April 24th, 2008.. I was at my girlfriends house playing cards. It was around 12:30 or 1:00 in the morning when I decided to leave and come home… When I tipped the hill that overlooks the water, I seen this bright green light.. It was just like a single firework.. I eman honestly… it was just like as if you took a firework and lite it, and watched how it fell really slow and graceful… well this is EXACTLY how this looked.. so I thoguht Hummm… I wonder if someone shot off a flare out on the water… So I stopped and looked out around, and it was total blackness.. The bright green light fell really graceful, and it just vanished!! it lasted for about 5 seconds… I can’t stop thinking about it!! Please, if ANYONE has any information please lettme know! I really don’t think it was a ufo or anything like that… I just would like to have some kind of explanation for this! This happened in Newfoundland, Canada. Thanks for all your help people..! this has me creeped out!

    I live in Dumfries, Scotland and last night when my mate and I were walking home at about 2320hrs, I spotted a green fluorescent light flashing across the sky. It was not very high and had what appeared to be a kind of yellow tail behind it. The other thing was there was no noise at all. And then it vanished. I am a sceptic but could not account for what this was. Absolutely amazing. What could it have been?

    About 5 minutes ago 11:55 pm UK – Staffordshire! I looked out my window just gazeing and out of no where something spead from the sky behind me to the front, I would describe it as some sort of green opject with maybe a few other light colours as dots in the front sparkling. The end of it seem to fade, at first I thought it was a firework, but then I realised it was way to high and for it to be fired in that posistion and at that height it must of been fired from a mountain – so I ruled that out and now im here,… what the hell could it be?

    my friends think I’m seeing things but this morning at 1:30 am I was on my back porch since I could not sleep, I was talking to a friend on the phone and I was looking out over the roof of my house and saw a green ball of light, it looked as though it fell from the sky but not knowing it exact location or actual size it could have went across the sky, I screamed and run through in my back door and went out the front, it looked as though it fell in my neighbors yard across the road from me, I could not see anything in his yard or any where around, my friend on the phone told me I was nuts, several of my friends laughed at me but I found this site which shows several people with similar sightings.

    my husband and I were driving down the road close to an airport when out of the corner of my eye i spotted what i first thought was a plane landing but when i turned to look at it i noticed it was bright neon green and shooting like a falling star, I told my husband to “look!” and we just stared in amazment, just as we thought it was about to hit the ground it vanished. Does ANYONE know what this could have been??
